U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens is a modern day nineteenth century-style lawman, enforcing his brand of justice in a way that puts a target on his back with criminals, and places him at odds with his bosses in the Marshal service. That conflict results in a reassignment for Givens to the U.S. District covering the town where he grew up. He is an anachronism, a tough, soft-spoken gentleman who finds his quarry fascinating, but never gives an inch. Dig under his placid skin and you'll find an angry man who grew up hard in rural Kentucky, with an outlaw father, who knows a lot more about who he doesn't want to be than who he really is.

In Pronto (1997) James Le Gros played Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, also wearing a bright-colored Stetson hat. The Pronto hat has a wider, more dramatically curved brim, and is quite a bit brighter in color than the Justified hat. It also doesn't feature the hand-tooled leather band that the Justified hat does, instead opting for a band made of the same colored material, from which the hat is made. The hat used in this show is now called the "Stetson Marshall". It sports a four and one-fourth inch cattleman crown, a much less dramatic brim, and comes in a subtle "Ranch tan" colored wool. Leonard Elmore expressed some trepidation with the hat this show used, describing the hat he wrote as "the Dallas Businessman Special, a felt city cowboy hat called the Stetson Open Road, accept no substitutions."

On multiple occasions, Raylan and the Marshals become involved in criminal activities which would either be the purview of local and state law enforcement or some other branch of the Department of Justice. See more
